Hidden AA’s



If your lookin to Min/Max or find a cool way to increase your characters abilities - this is a guide that will have the quests and items that give AA's to your character that are hidden! These are not listed under the Special tab at all until you actually get them - hence Hidden AA's. I would like to make sure this list is as complete as possible, and I'm pretty sure there are more items / quests out there that will give hidden AA's to your characters. Hopefully we can make this a complete list!​


Sanctity of the Keepers / Dark Reign
Dragons of Norrath Expansion

This is by far the best of the bunch – it takes a while to do and takes faction work. You will be working either Norrath Keepers or the Dark Reign faction (based on your characters race).
You have to do group quests and raids to complete it (easy at 120). Follow the links below and do them in order and you will get to the 5/5 Sanctity rank.

AA
1/5 - Gift of the Keepers / Dark Reign - Base stats (and stat cap) increase by 10
2/5 - Valor of the Keepers / Dark Reign - 2% Maximum Health, 250Mana or 250 Endurance
3/5 - Embrace of the Keepers / Dark Reign - Buff slot limit increase by 1
4/5 - Power of the Keepers / Dark Reign - Crit Chance increase 1-3% for Spells, Heals and Melee.
5/5 - Sanctity of the Keepers / Dark Reign - Resist Detrimental Spells

Once maxed the AA reads as follows –
Sanctity of the Keepers / Dark Reign
Your devotion to Norrath’s Keepers increase your total and maximum strength, stamina, agility, dexterity, wisdom, intelligence, and charisma by 10 points, your maximum base health (derived from your stamina) by 3%, your maximum mana and endurance by 200 points, the number of mystical effects that can affect your by 1, your chance of performing a critical melee hit with all skills by 40%, the chance your spells will apply critically by 1%, and grants a 1% chance to completely resist incoming detrimental spells.

These two walkthroughs are great. I used both to get the proper faction needed and quests needed in order to complete the entire 5/5 AA

Aura of Battle
Scars of Velious Expansion

This was originally a buff but was changes to give your character a permanent stat. This AA comes from items – Plus it is limited to WAR, PAL, and SHD. The items do list CLR and DRU as well – but I am unsure if they will give the AA to the classes – worth finding out for sure.

AA
1/1 – Aura of Battle – Increase HP regen by 2 hp per tick, Increase Attack by 10 points.

The items it comes from are:
Fearsome Shield

Pauldrons of Ferocity
https://everquest.allakhazam.com/db/item.html?item=5454


Breath of Venesh
Seeds of Destruction Expansion

This was a buff and was changed to an AA and permanently gives you the stats and comes from Items. This one does have a downside – it lowers your End / Mana regen per tick (please keep that in mind). This AA comes from items - The links below show the buff and the items that give the AA.

Now this buff is limited. It will go to 5/5 for some classes (mostly casters and priest classes) and 4/5 for hybrids. Each class seems to have a weird cap.

AA
5/5 – Breath of Venesh – Increase HP regen by 110 per tick, decrease End 22 per tick, decrease Mana 22 per tick.
4/5 – Tiring Breath – Increase HP regen by 70 per tick, decrease End 14 per tick, decrease Mana 14 per tick.

Breath of Vanesh
https://everquest.allakhazam.com/db/spell.html?spell=20531
Tiring Breath
https://everquest.allakhazam.com/db/spell.html?spell=15879


Harmonize
Underfoot Expansion

Bard ONLY – this increases all song damage by 9% - It’s a must have! This AA comes from items as well.

AA
4/4 – Harmonize – This passive ability increases the effectiveness of your singing skill by 0.9% Activate items with this effect to progress this ability.

The easiest item to get that gives this AA comes from Phosphorescent Rapier of Dim Light - 260 Marks of Valor.
https://everquest.allakhazam.com/db/item.html?item=85791

There are other items that give this effect as well – they are upgraded versions of the Phosphorescent Rapier, and 2 other items.

Ancient Flames
Rain of Fear

Kind of an amazing AA -But extremely hard to get. Hardcore Heritage is the only time to get it. Luckily you can get the attunable version - so you can unattune it and have multiple toons click it.

Ancient Flames - 17% overhaste, 18 HP Regen per tick

Items it comes from:
Ancient Cloak of Flames
This is the attunable version - Only drops during Harcore Heritage

Mightly Cloak of Flames
This is the No Drop version - Only drops during Hardcore Heritage



That’s the ones that I have found so far! If anyone happens to know of any other clickable item or quests that gives you AA’s please post it and it will be added to the list!

Gnoll Reaver Fortitude AA comes from Bloodmetal Inlaid Gnollish Totem, The clicky totem comes from Anniversary Group Mission: War Games, during anniversary time events.
It is an AA that gives permanent AC buff, up to around 585 for Tanks (some variation for casters), at level 5/5 of the AA. Winning the mission gets you the Totem clicky and activates level 1/5 of the AA.
To get to level 5/5, you must take it to the shroudkeeper gnoll and shroud up as a gnoll and go kill for xp as you level the shroud (standard shroud leveling). you return to the Shroudkeeper (the GNOLL one not the other shroudkeepers!!) and tell him about your killings and he will level your AA.
As a bonus, the item you carry, the totem, is also a clicky illusion of a gnoll, no additional buffs. The AC listed above is always part of you, it is not an additional 'buff' to worry about seeing if it is on in the buff window.

Journeyman's Speed AA is a 6/6 speed increase to your base run speed. You gain levels by visiting zones (Just simply zoning in) and and getting the Explorer Achievements done. About every 4 expansions worth your level goes up and you click the Journeyman Compass to activate it.

If you make a Heroic Character then the DON AA and Trials of Mata Muram AA are given with that upgrade.

Not announced yet what special AA the new level 100 Heroic's will have on them.

Just to clarify - this is bard only.

On the good side of things it is also sold by Akele in TWK for 260 Marks of Valor and Gilbot the Magnificent for 50 as opposed to 5 from Gilbot the Golden

Oh, did not see the OP has Rapier covered already. woops:(

Just to clarify, Heroic toons get 4/5 for DoN AA's. It does give you everything needed to request Vishitmar the Fallen raid for the last AA. The raid is a pain as you can't just DPS through the last mechanic. (From 25% down you can only do 1% damage before going through text with non aggro npcs)
